City parking Police await autopsy on stabbing victim fees will go up ▼ SUSPICIOUS DEATH

STAFF REPORTER

ASSISTANT EDITOR

He was a father, a golfer, a fun-loving hockey player and reputedly a hard-working guy. A child of the Kootenays, Christopher Ausman is also being described as a pretty tough 32-year-old man by the many friends and family leaving thoughts, pictures and videos on the Facebook page set up to mark his loss. Yet something happened to Ausman in the early hours of Saturday that RCMP cannot or will not explain. An officer found his deceased body in a pool of blood on a Rutland sidewalk; nothing has come to light about the cause of his death since. “Certainly this is a suspicious death. There’s no doubt about that. This is a 32-year-old man who was found deceased, which is not normal circumstances,” said Const. Kris Clark, Kelowna RCMP spokesman in a press conference held outside the detachment Monday morning. “…We are left with very few other circumstances, yes,” Clark admitted when pressed to add the word “murder” to the description. He would go no further, refusing to answer more questions until the autopsy is complete. Ausman was spotted in the 100-block of Highway 33 a few hun-

The price of parking is going up in Kelowna—at least the parking the city provides. On Monday, city council approved an increase of 75 cents per hour for on-street metered parking, sending the price from 50 cents per hour to $1.25 per hour, part of a larger parking management strategy for the city. The increase is the first for metered parking in the city in 20 years, according to city staff. Off-street parking, now between 50 cents per hour and $1 per hour will have its base rate set at $1 per hour and daily off-street parking will have a base rate of $5 per day, instead of ranging between $3 per day and $5.20 per day. City real estate director Derek Edstrom told council it’s important to keep on-street parking more expensive than off-street parking to encourage drivers to use the local lots and parkades so there will be better turnover of spaces for people using businesses, especially in commercial areas such as downtown, Rutland and South Pandosy. The message resonated with all on council as it was supported unanimously. “I’m a firm believer that parking should cost more than public transit,” said Coun. Colin Basran in supporting approval of the new parking management strategy. He said while viewed as a percentage, the 150 per cent hike appears large, but in terms of dollars and cents, the 75 cent per hour increase is “not that great.” His fellow councillors and Mayor Walter Gray agreed, with several saying the increases are needed if the city is going to effectively manage parking, raise the revenues needed to provide more parking in future and provide better technology for those using it, such as pay stations where credit cards can be used, the ability to pay for parking using cell phone apps and even monitors in the pavement under parking stalls to provide information about available parking for the public. “There is also a bigger objective for the city,” said Mayor Walter Gray, alluding to Basran’s point. “Getting you out of your automobile (and onto public transit, walking or cycling).” The goals of the city’s new strategy, according to city staff, are to improve parking availability, ensure the system continues to pay for itself so general taxation is not impacted and improve customer service options.

Fitzpatrick family decides to sell CedarCreek winery Two of the leading winery proprietors in the Central Okanagan have reached an agreement that will see CedarCreek Estate Winery sold to Anthony von Mandl, head of VMF Estates which also owns the Mission Hill Family Estate Winery. Announcement of the deal was made last Friday in a joint statement by von Mandl and Ross Fitzpatrick, who operated the winery with his son Gordon Fitzpatrick. “Our family has long admired the pioneering achievements of Ross, Linda and Gordon Fitzpatrick,” said von Mandl. “The Fitzpatrick family has consistently produced some of the top wines in the Okanagan Valley. “Our family would like to pay tribute to the exceptional work of CedarCreek founder, Senator Ross Fitzpatrick, whose vision has not only built one of the most re-

The success of CedarCreek is rooted in the vision of the elder Fitzpatrick, a retired Canadian senator who was born and raised in the Okanagan who fulfilled his boyhood dreams by returning to the Okanagan Valley to acquire an orchard and small vineyard near Kelowna and naming

it CedarCreek. CedarCreek owns some of the valley’s most desirable vineyards in Kelowna and Osoyoos. While CedarCreek was not up for sale when initially approached by von Mandl, the Fitzpatricks said upon reviewing the offer, they saw another family with a shared vi-

sion for the Okanagan Valley who would continue their family legacy for generations to come. “The CedarCreek philosophy of respect the land, honour tradition and pursue perfection has guided us well over the last 27 years, up to and including this final transaction,” said Ross Fitzpa-

Judge reduces bail for arrested reporter Twenty-five-year-old Kelowna freelance reporter Tieja MacLaughlin pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of harassment Friday in Benton County Superior Court, according to KVEW TV in Kennewick, Wash. On its website, the news station reported Mac Laughlin’s bail was reduced from $50,000 to $10,000 and, as a condition of her release from jail, MacLaughlin had to sign a no contact order promising not to contact Jackson Playfair, 19.

and a fine. According to court documents, MacLaughlin threatened Playfair after learning he had cheat-

ed on her with another girl while in Spokane. Playfair became concerned and contacted authorities after MacLaugh-

lin indicated she was on her way to see him. Officers met MacLaughlin at the Kennewick Super 8 and told her to go home. She told police she’d abide by their conditions, but later in the day Playfair contacted law enforcement and showed that MacLaughlin had sent another 20 to 25 messages. MacLaughlin was subsequently arrested and was held in jail for six

days. MacLaughlin’s LinkedIn account lists her as an employee of both Castanet and Shaw TV. She has also worked for the Kelowna Daily Courier. Playfair is the son of former NHL player and Calgary Flames head coach Jim Playfair. According to KVEW TV, MacLaughlin is due back in court Feb. 12; her trial is scheduled for March 10.

We have placed CedarCreek in very good hands… “I am very proud of our accomplishments and would like to extend my sincerest appreciation to my family, staff, colleagues and customers for their support over the years,” Fitzpatrick’s statement concluded. The purchase includes CedarCreek winery and the Fitzpatrick family’s vineyard holdings, ex-

cluding the Greata Ranch Vineyard and Winery in Peachland which the Fitzpatrick family will continue to own and operate. The purchase price was not disclosed and the transaction is expected to close in early February 2014. VMF Estates is the von Mandl family’s newly created family-owned business comprising a collection of vineyards in the Okanagan Valley, including Mission Hill Family Estate. Each winery operates independently, with separate staffing and management. The common purpose is to produce wines that can stand alongside the best in the world.

Affordability remains an issue Alistair Waters ASSISTANT EDITOR

It’s no wonder people think the price of property in Kelowna is too high. According to figures released last Thursday, the average current asking price for a residential house in the Central Okanagan is a whopping $908,000. But before potential buyers give up on believing they will ever be able to afford to buy a house here, there’s another figure to consider—the average sale price of a house here right now is only $471,000. And according to the one local realtor, finding a “nice” house in a “nice” neighbourhood in the $300,000 to $400,000 range is not the impossibility many think it is. “You’ll just have to drive to the lake instead of walking to it,” said Andrew Smith, with Royal LePage Kelowna. Smith has crunched the numbers and said the disconnect between asking prices and selling prices here is skewed by the fact there are some very expensive houses on the market right now. Four properties are currently listed at more than $10 million each, and another 105 are priced at more than $1 million each. But, while he said houses priced under $400,000 (244 currently on the market) are proving to be pretty quick sells, it’s the large number of houses priced over $800,000 (367) that are stalling when it comes to attracting buyers. And the supply does not look like it’s going to be exhausted any time soon. Last year, 106 houses priced over $1 million were sold in the Cen-

tral Okanagan, averaging just under nine sales per month. At that rate, the 109 currently on the market here would take another year to sell off. “We used to celebrate when a $1 million house was sold,” said Smith. “Now a $2 million sale doesn’t raise an eyebrow.” In the days of escalating property price—prior to the financial crisis that started in 2008—property values sky rocketed making anyone who bought between the lade 1990s and the 2007 very happy. They are likely still ahead of where they started despite the drop in values between 2008 and 2012. But for people who bought at the height of the boom market cycle, the picture is much darker. “There are plenty of people whose mortgages are bigger than the amount they would get for their house,” said Smith. Despite that, local realtors are expressing optimism in the market for 2014, especially given where 2013 ended off. According to the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board: • In December, 25 per cent of buyers were “move-up” buyers for Kelowna homes, about the same as the previous month • 20 per cent were first time buyers compared with 18 per cent the previous month • While the number of buyers coming from places like Alberta (14 per cent) and the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island (6.6 per cent) were slightly lower than the previous month, those numbers are expected to pick up in the traditionally more busy spring and summer months Another sign of a turn around coming here is

the drop in the number of foreclosures. Currently, there are 40 properties in foreclosure in the Central Okanagan, a number not seen since 2009 when it was 43. Between 2010 and 2013 the number of foreclosures shot up from 83 to150. Earlier last week, the 10th annual Demographia International report,which compares the median price of homes in 360 cities in Canada, Australia, the U.S, the U.K, Japan, Ireland, New Zealand and Hong and Singapore, deemed house prices here “severely unaffordable” in relation to the median household income. But Smith argues the $62,900 household income figure listed in the report is likely too low as it does not account for the money many coming here to buy houses have from such as investments and retirement income. He said supply and demand has never worked particularly well here be-

cause the Kelowna market, despite the hot real estate market of the early 2000s, because it is so heavily is influenced by many other factors in other parts of the county and the Central Okanagan is a draw for people, especially those from the Prairies looking to buy a second home. “You are not likely to buy a second home is Red Deer, Alberta,” said Smith. As for the perception the high asking prices here may have an adverse effect on the local market, Smith said that at first blush it may but if real estate agents work with their clients properly, they can show there are affordable houses to be found here. “There continues to be a huge disconnect between average asking price and selling price overall in our market, but it’s been that way for so long now I think it’s just considered the norm.”

Parking: Get used to walking again

P

arking is always a dicey issue for any Kelowna city council to deal with. That’s probably why council spent well over an hour talking about an increase of 75 cents an hour for on-street meter parking, a discussion that could have concluded in a lot less time. While city councillors and staff articulated the different arguments for why parking rates need to go up, the concern for potential push-back from local residents has little to do with the money side of the argument,

but rather what it represents— change. Kelowna is evolving into a big city, something that many people who moved here over the past 20 years were trying to get away from. People enjoy the lifestyle, accessible amenities and the small town appeal that Kelowna, like many other B.C. Interior communities, has to offer compared to the hustle and bustle of living in the Lower Mainland or southern Vancouver Island. One of the characteristics of

small-town living is cheap and accessible parking. In Vancouver, one argument goes, we shell out big bucks to park our vehicles downtown or in many of the suburbs, so what’s the big deal about increasing parking by 75 cents in Kelowna? The answer is because of what that represents in the growth of Kelowna, the reality that many people have left the city for smaller communities because they don’t want to take out a second mortgage on their

overpriced home to park their car in the Vancouver or Victoria’s downtown core to go to work or attend an event. So, we all need to get used to giving up vehicle parking convenience in favour of walking, just like everyone else in big cities. While using public transit or hoofing it around Kelowna may not be popular for many, it is the way of the future if this city is to truly ever achieve a more balanced transportation system while continuing to grow.

▼ HISTORICAL REVISIONISM

Enough with the apologies already To the editor: Re: Will We Be Making Reparations In Future For Today’s Laws? (Jan. 24 Capital News) And: B.C. Should Do A Better Job at Apologizing than Feds (Jan. 14 Capital News column by Alistair Waters). Demanding and granting apologies and reparations for historical wrongs committed a long time ago has become all the rage, and the all-party self-flagellating compulsion of applying today’s moral and social standards to past circumstances and wrong-doings has

turned into a grievance-driven new version of historical revisionism. On June 22, 2006, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, on behalf of all Canadians, apologized fully and unreservedly to the Chinese community for the head tax and for Canada’s subsequent treatment of Chinese immigrants. On Aug. 3, 2008, Stephen Harper, speaking in Surrey, B.C. to a crowd of 8,000 members of the Sikh community, apologized for the 1914 Komagata Maru incident. Enough already. With Ujjal Donanjh having public-

ly advised against apologies for “historical wrongs” (Komagata Maru) and Victor Wong, executive director of the Chinese-Canadian National Council and Sid Tan of the Head Tax Family Society of Canada continuing to advocate apologies for “historical wrongs” (head tax) .... it has now become a no-win matter of: Damned if you do (apologize)and damned if you don’t (apologize). E.W. Bopp, Tsawwassen

▼ FOR THE RECORD

U.S. police strictly follow probable cause law To the editor: In the Friday, Jan. 24 issue of the Capital News, a letter from Mr. Grant Baudais appears. He takes issue with the issue of mandatory road-side driver testing. I tend to agree with him to a point, but wish to address another part of his letter. To quote: “The next thing we know, we will mirror the police state to the south of us where you can be stopped and searched without probable cause anywhere, and

be subjected to various forms of delay and harassment.” I would hope that Mr. Baudais is referring to Mexico, where indeed his statement would apply. However, if he is referring to any state in the United States of America, he is absolutely wrong. As a veteran USA police officer and supervisor, retired after 31 years of service, I can categorically state that nowhere in the USA can a search be conducted without probable cause. This rule has

been established for years, by various state courts, and the US Supreme Court. Should an overzealous officer do this, the case would be quickly dismissed upon a motion to suppress evidence. Officers in the USA are very much aware of search and seizure rules. Any officers who routinely ignore the protocol end up having very serious discussions with their supervisors, and the local District Attorney’s office. I also note that, in the State of Oregon, “road

checks” of any kind are prohibited. So, following the logic of Mr. Baudis, British Columbia is more of a “police state” than is the USA! In the USA, a traffic violation is required to justify a vehicle stop. If the officer finds suspicion of driving under the influence of intoxicants, further investigation is then justified. Having said that, perhaps Mr. Baudais is referring to the broad latitude given to US Homeland Security Border Services officers? True enough,

when crossing the border, one agrees to any search deemed necessary. However, I must state that this is true of Canadian Border Services as well. This is the case in any country, when crossing the border. So, if Mr. Baudais has a specific instance where, in the USA, he was stopped and searched without probable cause, I would be most interested to read the details of his experience. Bob Sherman, Kelowna

Would same negligence as in Fort Chipewyan persist if oil pollutants flowed through Edmonton? To the editor: In his Jan. 23 column Old Man Take A Look At Your Facts-Young Fundraising Tour, Tom Fletcher tries to downplay the toxic effects of the oilsands near Fort McMurray and to discredit Neil Young for alerting the people of Canada to those effects. Fletcher roams far and wide in his critique— from admitting that toxins are on the rise in the area but “found in much high-

er concentrations around large cities where fuel is consumed,” to stating that Young could have referred to “closely packed pumpjacks reaching to the horizon” near Bakersfield where hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) is taking place and to the shale oil train explosion in North Dakota. I hope that means that Fletcher is against the dangers of fracking and of the dangers of trans-

porting shale oil by train but you wouldn’t know it by the way he downplays the increased rate of cancer in the people of Fort Chipewyan. The Dec. 16 Edmonton Journal has an article about John Chadi, recently elected councillor in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo of which Fort Chipewyan is a part. In late October Chadi was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma, a

very rare cancer of the bile duct which occurs in one of every 100,000 to 200,000 people. This was the third confirmed case in Fort Chipewyan in a decade with several other suspected cases having occurred. The 2011 census gave a population of 847. Fish have been a staple in the diet of the Fort Chipewyan people. However in the Athabasca River fish have been found

with cysts, lesions, crooked spines and bulging eyes. Does Fletcher think that if the Athabasca River, with all its pollutants, flowed south through Edmonton, instead of north to Fort Chipewyan there would be the same negligence that has been shown to the people of Fort Chipewyan?

term parking in shortterm spaces or to effectively replenish reserve funds to support our parking and transportation infrastructure,” said Dave Duncan, parking operations coordinator for the city. “Current on-street parking rates have been in effect and unchanged for over 20 years, and are well below market rates and the true cost of providing the service.” In addition to the increases in parking rates, council also approved development of specific area parking plans as the next phase of the parking strategy. That strategy will allow City Hall to respond to a number of challenges related to parking in key areas, including changes to parking supply, a growing demand for shortand long-term parking in developing areas and the impacts of increased growth and development on neighbouring residential areas. In the short term, the city plans to spend $19 million on expanding the existing library parkade

downtown and building a new parkade, in part to service a planned new Interior Health office building proposed for the corner of Doyle Avenue and Richter Street downtown. The new parkade would be built between Memorial Arena and the Kelowna Museum, and will include some public parking as well as spots reserved for workers at the new IH building. To allow time for public notification of the increased rates, the changes are not planned to go into effect until June 1. All monthly parking customers, who will also see an increase—base rates will go to $53 to $66 per month from the existing range of $35.75 to $65 per month at city owned parking lots—will receive notification of changes by mail two months in advance. Edstrom said the changes will bring parking rates at city lots and parkades more in line with what private parking providers charge. In putting together the plan, city staff consulted with numerous local

groups, such as business associations, residents’ associations, business people in areas throughout the city and developers. All expressed support for the city’s plan. “The city wants to ensure there is sufficient parking for customers and visitors to key areas, while at the same time supporting the goal of providing a balanced transportation network from the Official Community Plan, which means encouraging people to carpool, take transit, bike and/or walk to work when possible,” said Duncan. The next steps in the parking management strategy will see development of individual area plans, beginning with the South Pandosy and downtown areas. Other areas of the city, including around Kelowna General Hospital and the Landmark buildings on the south side of Harvey Avenue across from the Parkinson Recreation Centre will follow, as required, pending budget approval.

Meanwhile, on Monday council also agreed to increase the cost of some parking at Kelowna’s airport as part of an overhaul of the airport’s fees and charges. There, the daily rate to park in the short-term lot will increase to $18.50 per day from the current $17 per day and the longterm lot price will rise to $12 per day from $11 per day and to $62 per week from $52 per week. Gold Pass holders will see the cost of the passes increase to $900 for six months of parking from $845. Metered rates will not change.

If you familiarize yourself with these postoperative exercises and practice them now, they will be easier to perform after the surgery. Be careful to avoid activities which will potentially increase pressure in damage joints such as running or other high impact activities. A safe and gentle way to exercise painful joints is in warm water. Doctors often refer patients to pool programs before and after surgery because of the buoyancy and low impact benefits. Remember that the old saying “No pain, no gain” isn’t relevant today. Pain is your body’s signal that something does not feel good and you need to stop the activity. Also, if you have pain for more than two hours following exercise you’ve done too much. You will be better off to shorten the duration or reduce intensity of the activity.

Don’t put off assembling an estate plan A n estate plan is an essential part of planning for the future.  Estate planning involves the transfer of someone’s assets (e.g. property, money) when they die, as well as other personal assets. What is the right age to start on an estate plan?  As soon as you start to accumulate assets or when you start to have children, you should have an estate plan.  During our lifetime, planning is part of our routine. We plan for holidays and family gatherings. We plan on things to do when we are not working. We plan on making consumer purchases such as for vehicles and major appliances. So what about planning in regards to estate planning for you and your family? Almost 50 per cent of the adult population who should don’t make estate planning a priority. 

FISCAL FITNESS

Doreen Smith That means nothing has been done to protect you and your family against the many negative aspects of having no estate plan. Estate planning should be considered as one of the best planning strategies during our lifetime. Making a will is an important part of planning for your family’s future. If you die without a will, your property will be divided according to B.C. law, and the costs to administer your estate will increase. You will be giving up the right to appoint the guardian of your choice for any children in your care. 

A will is a legal enforceable declaration of how you want your property to be distributed after death.  A will provides directions on minor children including who will be the guardian of your most treasured possession, your children. You will also declare who you want to be the executor or executrix of your will and this is the person who will administer your estate.  You will name the person to be the guardian of your minor children. You can choose a trusted family member or trusted friend or you can choose a professional to administer your will and will be charged a professional fee for these services.  Ask about the costs associated with professional administration— to determine if there is a fixed cost or a cost based on the total assets admin-

istered. If you die without a will—this is referred to as dying intestate, the province will administer your estate. The province will decide who is in charge of your accumulation of assets and apply intestate guidelines of how your assets will be divided.  You do not have a say in this intestate process because you are no longer alive and you missed the opportunity to make a Will when you were alive. The government provides the guidelines and the extra legal and accounting costs will come out of your estate value. Organizing your financial affairs means taking care of your affairs before you are gone.  If you think it is difficult to get started on your estate plan now, it will be increasingly difficult and more expensive for someone else to do your estate plan for you after you are gone. The reality is we

Impressive résumé left as Scott team bids farewell for now Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

While Kelly Scott and the other members of her rink are unsure of what path their respective curling futures will take, one fact is certain—the Kelowna team has placed an indelible mark on the women’s game in Canada. Scott, third Jeanna Schraeder, second Sasha Carter and Sarah Wazney have decided to go their separate ways and will not take to the ice together in the fall of 2014. With the commitment and demands that are now required to remain competitive at the top level of women’s curling, Scott said her team agreed the time was right to devote more time and energy to family. Schraeder has three young children, Carter has two, and Scott, one. “As long as any of us can remember, decisions

we made all seemed to be around curling events,” said Scott. “The underlying factor is we want to spend more time with our children, our kids are No. 1. It’s an emotional and difficult time but we just felt it was time to close this chapter and start a new one. “It gives everybody a sense of relief that now we can make decisions based more on family than curling.” The core of the Scott team—Scott, Schraeder and Carter—has been together since 2002. During that time, the Kelowna rink won six B.C. championships, two Canadian titles (2006, 2007) and one world title in 2007. Four different players—Renee Simons, Dailene Sivertson, Jacquie Armstrong and Wazney—have filled the lead position. Scott said for much of the current season her team knew, in some form,

that change was on the horizon. When the Kelowna rink came up short of a fifth straight B.C. title earlier this month in Prince George, the decision to disband became official. Scott admitted the team’s competitive fire has perhaps waned somewhat over the last couple of years. And with the elite teams in the game working harder than ever, keeping pace can be an exhausting proposition. “We’ve seen the game change, we’ve played through three Olympic cycles, and it just gets more and more demanding, you need to put in more hours and hours,” she said. “When we were at the top, we put in a lot more time than we do now…and we can’t even mimic that commitment now. We play because we love the game, but right now it’s time to step back.” Still, Scott said she

normal lifespan of most teams by years and years. We’ve had such a good run, there’s no shame in stopping now.” While Scott is uncertain whether she’ll curl next season, she wouldn’t

surprised to see her former teammates back on the ice in the not-too-distant future. “I think all three of us (Jeanna and Sasha) have some unfinished business. (Curling) is on the

back burner right now, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see us all back at some time. It’s been such a part of our world for so long, I don’t think it’s the end of the road.”

’03-04 Rockets into B.C. HHoF

CAPITAL NEWS FILE

THE 2004 Memorial Cup champion Kelowna Rockets, including Josh Gorges (left) and Brett Palin, will be inducted this summer into the B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame.

The 2003-04 campaign was a season like no other for the Kelowna Rockets’ organization. A decade later, the team’s legacy will be recognized with its induction this summer into the B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame in the team category. The Western Hockey League club is being honoured for its Memorial Cup championship victory in 2004 in Kelowna. Under the guidance of GM Bruce Hamilton and coach Marc Habscheid, the Rockets won the WHL’s regular season title. Habscheid and his coaching staff, which included Ryan Huska as an assistant, had the Rockets playing a gritty style, shutting down its opponents with a stifling defense and the goaltending of Kelly Guard, whose 13 shutouts remain a WHL record. In the post-season, the Rockets dispatched the Kootenay Ice in four games to open the playoffs before taking out the Tri-City Americans in six games in the second round. In the WHL Western Conference final,

they played a tough Everett Silvertips squad and would lose three straight overtime games to Everett, a team that had allowed the second fewest goals in the WHL. As the host team, the Rockets then went undefeated at the Canadian Hockey League’s year-end tournament, beating the Gatineau Olymiques 2-1 in the cup final on May 23, 2004 at Prospera Place. Guard was named the Memorial Cup MVP, defenceman Shea Weber was a tournament all-star, while captain Josh Gorges was named the most sportsmanlike player. Rockets president and GM Bruce Hamilton was previously inducted into the B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame in the builder category in the summer of 2010. The B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame 2014 Induction will be held on Friday, July 25 in Penticton at the South Okanagan Events Centre. Also being inducted are former NHL players Kirk McLean and Pat Price, and B.C. Hockey program and development coordinator Bill Ennos.

at home coming on Nov. 20 against the Victoria Royals It’s just the second meeting of the season between the Chiefs and Rockets, as the Chiefs won 6-3 back in October in Spokane. The Canadian Hockey League’s top-ranked team, the Rockets are in the process of winding down a busy January where they will have played 15 games in 31

days. Kelowna is coming off a stint of three games in as many nights, as they posted wins over Medicine Hat (6-2) Friday and Lethbridge (5-0) on Saturday, then travelled to Kent, Wash. on Sunday where they lost 4-1 to the Seattle Thunderbirds. Tyrell Goulbourne opened the scoring for Kelowna with a shorthanded goal, but the Thunderbirds responded with four un-

answered goals, including two on the power play. It was Kelowna’s fourth defeat in 2014— all on the road—and just their fourth loss in the last 28 games. The Rockets (40-7-02) still hold a sizeable lead in the Western Conference and WHL standings by 11 points over the Portland Winterhawks (33-122-3). Kelowna will play a home-and-home set this

weekend with the Kamloops Blazers, starting Friday at the Interior Savings Centre, then again Saturday at Prospera Place.

Warriors pull out dramatic tie in Chilliwack vs Bruins Not even the daunting exercise of three road games in three days could do much to slow down the West Kelowna Warriors. The BCHL squad went 2-0-1 over weekend on a trip to the west to push their unbeaten streak to 11 games (9-0-2). After wins over Victoria and Alberni, the Warriors wrapped up the tour Sunday with a wild 7-7 tied against the Chilli-

wack Bruins. West Kelowna had a 5-2 lead in the third period, only to watch the Bruins score five straight goals for a 7-5 lead. But for the third time in a month, the Warriors rallied from two goals down in the final minute to tie the game, as David Pope scored twice in the final 55 seconds with the Warriors’ net empty. Pope pulled off the the

same feat a month ago in Trail. “It was a crazy game,” said Warriors associate coach Brent Gough. “With the team we have you would think we could have locked that one down. But credit to them, they worked hard. At 5-2 they could have packed it in but they didn’t, they kept coming at us.” The Warriors opened the weekend with a 5-4

Heat women’s volleyball split games with Alberta Pandas

The Kelowna Tenpin Bowling Association will host its annual scratchmatch play tournament on Sunday, Feb. 2 at the McCurdy Bowling Center. Co-hosted by Andre’s Electronic Experts, the event honours the memory of Andre Blanleil Sr. Winners from last year, Clem Fraser and Danny Carter-Squire, will be back to defend their title. Bowlers will bowl scratch games, and be grouped in order of current highest averages. Higher average players are in A group and lower averages start out in B group. Four singles games get things started off, and then based on results here, bowlers are grouped into doubles partners. In the first tournament, a total of 174 games were bowled of which 50 of them had a score of 200 or better—only the pros score like this. Men and women will compete in the tournament, and usually in the last rounds end up as a doubles team. See A17

Speijer had 18 more kills for a weekend total of 30, while Lars Borne-

mann who had 10 kills and three digs. This weekend, the

Heat will travel to Winnipeg for two matches with the Manitoba Bisons.

BRIANNA Beamish’s play from the outside was crucial in the Heat’s comeback win over Alberta Friday night at UBCO.

HEAT MEN

The UBCO men came up empty in their weekend set with the Alberta Golden Bears to slip to 4-14 on the season. On Friday, the Heat succumbed to the Bears in straight sets (25-20, 2514, 25-17).

“I just think we had an off night,” said Heat fifth-year Nate Speijer. “Alberta came in playing great volleyball, and we just had a hard time matching it.” Speijer did all he could

for the Heat, hitting .304 behind 12 kills on 23 attempts. On Saturday, a better start for the Heat but the same end result in a 3-1 loss (25-17, 25-27, 25-13, 25-22).

Klomps added 12 kills, six digs and five block assists, while Lenai Schmidt tallied 24 digs. On Saturday, Alberta answered back with an emphatic 3-0 verdict (2515, 25-21, 25-15). Klomps had eight kills and two total blocks for UBC Okanagan. The Heat, now 11-7, will visit Manitoba next weekend in a crucial series as the teams are currently tied for fourth in Canada West. “It’s not going to stop,” said Manuel, referencing the Heat’s strength of schedule over the past few weeks. Manuel indicated that he is fortunate that his team has built up somewhat of a cushion and because of that they’re not in panic mode.

Q

I wear hearing aids and I still can’t hear when I go to my condo board meetings or to the speakers at the senior’s group. Are there better aids that can help me there?

A

Hearing aids are limited in situations where the speech is coming from a distance, like when you are in an audience and the speaker is at the front of a room, as they tend to pick up the closer sounds better than the more distant voice that you are more interested in. So no, most hearing aids will do exactly what your current hearing aids are doing. But, hearing aid technology has improved so much that you can use an external microphone with certain hearing aids now. You can place this external mic right at the front of the room, in front of or on the speaker and his voice will be beamed directly to your aids, no other cords in between. Similar technology exists to send the sound from your home TV or cell phone directly to your hearing aids, which will make listening much easier.

Q A

What are the requirements to become a podiatrist in British Columbia and what level of medical training do podiatrists receive?

Podiatry is a branch of medicine devoted to the study of diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment of disorders of the foot, ankle, and lower extremity. It is a four year post-graduate medical degree and graduates are awarded a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) degree. Applicants can choose from nine schools in the United States. There are no accredited DPM degrees available in Canada. Podiatrists entering into practice in BC are now required to have at least two years of post-DPM residency-level training. US residencies are now three years in duration and residents become proficient in performing elective foot surgeries such as bunions and hammertoes, and partial foot amputations for patients with bone infection caused by diabetes. The ankle is also within the scope of practice in most US states. Podiatry residents rotate through anesthesia, radiology, internal medicine, pathology, and other surgical specialties such as orthopedics and plastics. If you have foot, ankle or knee pain while standing or walking, podiatrists specialize in evaluating the gait cycle and can improve your overall mechanics. No referral is required to see a podiatrist in BC.

Q A

I am allergic to dust mites. What can I do to keep my home free of them?

Dust mites pose a serious health risk to a significant portion of the population with more people developing allergies and asthmatic reactions every year. Dust mites are found throughout homes in carpets and furniture, but 90% are found in and on mattresses. They feed on our dead, bacteria-infested skin cells that collect on carpet, fabric and mattresses. Vacuuming alone will not eliminate dust mites. Steam cleaning (hot water extraction) does not kill dust mites and has been shown to raise humidity leading to increased bacteria and dust mite levels. So what can you do? The Oxy-Dry system is the perfect option for people with allergies or asthma. Along with our odorless, hypoallergenic and Green Seal Certified cleaning solutions, we use our exclusive ozone boost system to sanitize and deodorize. Ozone is an odorless and natural purifier that will eliminate all bacteria, germs and viruses on contact while also eradicating dust mites. There are no harsh chemicals or odors to aggravate the allergy sufferer and no risk of over wetting. As the ozone evaporates back to natural oxygen, mattresses are left fresh, clean, sanitary, dust mite free for up to 6 months and dry in as little as 20 minutes!

Q A

Why should I advertise in the Kelowna Capital News?

Spend Your Advertising Dollars Wisely...This is a term that, when it comes to advertising you will hear from each potential avenue that you decide to take. Radio, newsprint, online, whatever path you choose, will all tell you the same things… they are the BEST, with the best exposure, with the most readership, the most listeners, and that their website gets the most hits or “unique visitors”! It is their job to tell you that, to believe it, and to make you believe it. I believe that knowledge is power, so if you are researching it, then you are already on the right track; the toughest part is who to believe or what to believe. As a sales rep in a company that is extremely reputable, I am not writing this to get your business, but to educate you on the process. The Capital News has been a part of your community for 83 years. The longevity and reputation really speak for themselves. As a business owner, you know that word of mouth and reputation are key components in having success within your business. The Capital News has been successful because it strongly possesses these attributes. Many feel that the cost of advertising is an expense, while the ones that benefit from it, see it as an investment. The Capital News goes to just over 50,000 homes, and is one of the most affordable forms of advertising in the area. In tough economic times, getting the most “bang for your buck” is essential for most, and the Capital News gives you that opportunity. Being well informed is just good business sense!

Q A

This is a very common question and a simple solution in most cases. Whole Body Vibration (WBV) stimulates the lymphatic system which connects to every organ in the body to purify and strengthen the body. This system works via the pumping action by movements from WBV which removes excess fluid from the body tissues, absorbs fatty acids, transports fat to the circulation system for elimination, speeds digestion, loosens waste, and metabolizes and flush toxins from the entire body. When the body is stressed a physically and mentally, it wants to hold onto the fat and fluids thus no weight loss, this is where the lymphatic comes in, to help the body get rid of issues which will hold onto the weight, and you will feel less stress. The other issue is, we rely on what the scale says, but remember when you are toning and tightening you are loosing inches and and gaining muscle, more muscle increases calorie burning. Only judge your results by how your clothes are fitting and how much better you feel. You can burn the same amount of calories in 10 mins. on WBV than you would with regular exercising. To help with weight on the WBV there are simple exercises you can do to create better results, ask any athlete that uses WBV. The results will vary depending on your diet, exercise and please consult your Dr. if you have any chronic conditions before using. Please call to set up appointments for packages, free try outs or any questions.

Q A

I hear a lot of people talking about TMJ or TMD. What is it and how do I know if I have it?

TMJ refers to temporomandibular joint (your jaw joints) and TMD refers to the dysfunction of those joints. The population tends to use both abbreviations to suggest problems in that area. That is the easy part. TMD has been called the great imposter as its signs and symptoms can easily be mistaken for many other conditions. Symptoms can include all of the following plus more: headaches, neck aches, pain in your jaw joints, noises in your jaw joints (clicking and popping), limited ability to open, ear congestion (plugged ears), vertigo/dizziness/nausea, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), clenching and grinding, loose teeth, pain on eating, tender teeth, temperature sensitive teeth, difficulty swallowing, gum recession, bone loss, difficulty swallowing, facial pain, trigeminal neuralgia, nervousness/insomnia, postural problems, paresthesia of the fingertips (tingling in the fingers), and even bells palsy. As you can see – the ramifications are many. Selfassessment is a great first step. If you can relate to any of the items in the above list I would suggest you be examined by a dentist with interest and training in this area of dentistry. There are treatment options available for you. Enter the following YouTube link into your Internet browser for more information http://www.youtube.com watch?v=oAdKVu6vS20.

Q A

My roof is in pretty bad shape. Can I get a new roof in the winter or should I wait until spring?

Q

Yes, a new roof can be installed rather easily in the winter.

A new roof can be a considerable expense. But, the risk of a leaking roof, leading to possible mold growth, damaged ceilings or worse is a real concern. There are many reasons to roof in the winter rather than waiting. Here’s a few: 1. The cycle of freezing and thawing in spring can open up cavities in your roof membrane. Avoid this by installing a new roof before that happens. 2. Snow is easily swept off before roofing. Rain is a much greater concern. 3. Melting snow in the spring can find its way into your attic. 4. May and June are our rainiest months. If you have an aging or leaky roof, leaks are more likely during these months. 5. Roofers wear special shoe grips in the winter with metal spikes for steep or slippery slopes. 6. It’s a slower time for roofing and your cost for a new roof will be likely be less, as a result.

My father wears a prosthetic leg. His leg feels comfortable in the morning but by the afternoon he is complaining of pain and moving around in the prosthesis. Is this normal?

A

It is normal to have body fluid changes throughout the day, especially in new amputees. In the morning the prosthesis may feel tight, but later in the day it feels looser. Prosthetic socks come in different thicknesses, or plies, and can be worn to adjust for fluid changes in the residual limb. When the prosthesis feels loose, add a sock or increase the sock ply. When it’s too tight, remove a sock. Put socks on without wrinkles so that pressure points do not develop. If you are always wearing a lot of socks, have developed any sores, or your prosthesis is uncomfortably tight, talk to a certified prosthetist. You may need an adjustment.

John passed away peacefully at Cottonwoods on January 20, 2014 at 77 years of age. John is survived and will be dearly missed by his loving wife Glenda Palmer and his children Dale Palmer (Miki) of Calgary, AB, Lauren Crosby (Gary) of Clavet, SK and Barry Woodruff (Renee) of Morinville, AB as well as his eleven grandchildren. He will be missed also by his blended family Howard, Mark, Raffy and Dakota. He was predeceased by his parents Russell and Janet Palmer who had also retired in Kelowna. John was born in South Africa and raised in Wawa, ON. He lived in Ottawa before he followed his father into a career in the Canadian mining industry. It was a life he truly enjoyed. As part of different management teams he worked and lived in Uranium City, SK, Fraser Lake, BC, Clinton Creek, YT, Saskatoon, SK, Hinton, AB, Coronach, SK and Hanna, AB before retiring in Kelowna. Family and good friends were his mainstay. Upon retiring he golfed regularly and did volunteer photography for many Kelowna nonprofits for several years. In 2005 he received the Volunteer of the Year award from the United Way. He was one of the original overnight volunteers with Inn From The Cold and in Unitarian Fellowship circles he was known as one of the ‘Tool Guys’ with his friend Rick Hardman. John was always ‘up’ for a project that involved power tools and shared his skill with others. John and his wife Glenda enjoyed several wonderful trips abroad while he was still in good health. The family wishes to thank Dr. M. Bobyn for his care and concern during John’s illness. Our gratitude as well to the staff at KGH and Cottonwoods. In lieu of flowers donations could be made to Inn From the Cold (Kelowna) or your preferred charity. There will be no service by request however the family will gather later in the year to say goodbye together. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.mem.com and searching his name under stories. Arrangements entrusted to First Memorial Funeral Services, Kelowna. (250) 762-2299.

GRACE ADULT LAB RETRIEVER/ GERMAN SHEPHERD X SPAYED FEMALE

Grace is a picture of elegance, very playful & loving. She needs a comfortable new home where she can build up her confidence and trust. She will be a very good family dog ready to go walking, hiking or running with you. She is good with other dogs, loves to snuggle, cuddle and is fondly referred to as a ‘velcro dog’ by her foster parents. If you have the need, love and patience to make this beautiful girl the best she can be, ask the staff to set up and introduction.

YOUNG ADULT DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR NEUTERED MALE

Walburn is handsome & has a sweet character. He is good with cats, but suitable for a home with adults or older children only. He is looking for a warm loving owner who will help him become braver and confident... and in return he will reward you with smooching, cuddles and lots of love. Please ask the staff to set up a meet and greet with him.

ADULT DOMESTIC SHORT HAIR SPAYED FEMALE

Dharma is a tad scared right now, so would do better in a home with older children, a quiet environment and experienced owners with lots of patience. All she needs is a chance to come out of her shell and become a loving feline with much to offer a new family. If you feel you have the ideal home for this beauty then come down and spend some time getting to know her.

Jack & his sibs are pretty darn cute. He is lively, active and will make a wonderful family pet.

If you feel you have what it takes to make Jack a permanent member of your family unit, please ask the staff for a one-onone meeting...we have no doubt you will fall in love immediately.

Lucy is a wonderful young dog who will be a joyful addition to your household. She loves life, enjoys running, hiking & walking. She will need an active home & family to keep her well behaved.

Picaso is a great little girl. She is loving and so like to have a family of her very own and maybe a special spot by the window. A warm comfortable lap to lay in would be a real bonus, making her feel safe and loved. If you are looking for a sweet little companion and friend, she is right here waiting for you. Picaso is good with other cats, is tattoo’d and microchiped.

Bella is a very relaxed, loves giving and getting attention. Because of allt he dangers outside, she must be an indoor cat only...plus she wants to stay with her new family forever! She gets along with other cats, and is just waiting for second chance to become someones best friend. Come down and spend some time getting to know her.

Simon is a growing bundle of energy & cuteness. He is going to be a very active dog who will need daily exercise. His breed is intelligent, thrives on work and challenges & do best when their minds & bodies have a job to do. He would benefit from puppy obedience classes & will probably excel at agility. If you have the time & patience to make this pup the best he can be, ask the staff to set up a meet & greet with him.
